THE SECRET SCRIPTURE
An engrossing tale of one woman’s life, and a vivid reminder of the
stranglehold that the Catholic church had on individuals throughout much of the twentieth century. “It is a poignant story of the
horrors and hypocrisies of rural Ireland, the cruelties of civil war,
and the pernicious influence of the priesthood.”—The Daily Mail.
“Luminous and lyrical.”—O, The Oprah Magazine.

THE ANGEL MAKER
Translated by hester Velmans
A chilling story that explores the ethical limits of science and religion, The Angel Maker is a haunting tale in the tradition of The
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein. Brought
to life by internationally bestselling author Stefan Brijs, this eerie
tale promises to get under readers’ skin. “Unorthodox science and
unorthodox faith conjoin in an echo of both the Crucifixion and
Resurrection.”—Los Angeles Times.
